- We can order this
A campaign book like no other, this is Amy Chozick's extraordinary inside story of Clinton's pursuit of the US presidency.
A journalist for the New York Times, Amy Chozick's coverage of Hillary Clinton's imploding 2008 campaign and the 2016 election on `The Hillary Beat,' set off a years-long journey in which the formative years of Chozick's life became, both personally and professionally, intrinsically intertwined with Clinton's presidential ambitions. As Clinton tried, and twice failed, to shatter `that highest, hardest glass ceiling,' Chozick was trying, with various fits and starts, to scale the highest echelons of American journalism.
In this rollicking, hilarious book, Chozick takes us on a rollercoaster through the most noxious and dramatic presidential election in history. Through her candid, clear-eyed perspective - from her seat on the Hillary bus to her run-ins with Donald J. Trump – Chozick provides fresh intrigue and insights into the story we think we all know.
All this comes alongside a personal and moving memoir of how Chozick came to understand Clinton not as a political animal, but as a complete, complex person, full of contradictions and how her own perspective on political journalism changed in the process.
In Chasing Hillary she reflects on how she developed an intimate understanding of what drives Clinton, how she accomplished what no woman had before, and why she ultimately failed.
Illuminating, poignant and laugh-out-loud funny, Chasing Hillary is part campaign-memoir, part political thriller; a book that shines new light on a landmark moment in American political history and events that marked a turning point in the landscape of political journalism.
